Actress Jennifer Ellison is returning to the West End to star in hit comedy Boeing Boeing.

The former Brookside star will play an American air hostess called Gloria in the show, which is about an architect juggling three fiancees.

The 24-year-old returns to the stage after a successful stint as Roxie Hart in Chicago, which she first took on in 2004 and reprised in 2006.

The actress joins the show at London's Comedy Theatre from 1 October.

She will appear opposite Tracy-Ann Oberman, who is best known for playing Dirty Den's wife Chrissie in BBC soap EastEnders.

Ellison's role was previously played by Tamzin Outhwaite, who has starred in EastEnders, and ex-Emmerdale actress Amy Nuttall.

Ellison will also appear as a judge on a TV talent show based on the film Dirty Dancing.

She was the winner of TV reality show Hell's Kitchen in 2004.
